Dragon Zakura [ドラゴン桜] YAY [Rating: 10/10] well, i've seen a lot of school-dramas until now but none of them struck me leit d.z. did. In most doramas I missed the link to reality... most seemed really fake. but here you have a nice view into japanese society and into the educational system. The system of my homecountry (germany) is very different from the japanese so I cannot compare anything. I just can say that those "entrance exams" seem to be very important in japan and that the right choice of school is so important that it affects your whole future life. in germany its not at all like that. everyone who finishes highschool and passes the final exams can go to university 8ok, there are limits in terms of which grades you have, but its not as strict as in japan).
I really think it is a well-made drama, with good links to reality. the ending can be seen as disappointing, but those who have seen it must know - as i do - that it had to be link that, otherwise it wouldn't have been realistic.
another point ist: good-looking guys :D I only want to mention yamapi :D:D interesting role, he had the right age when he war starring in this drama. and teppei ... gosh nice hairstyle ;)
